Lesson Idea Name: Active Transport Modeling
Content Area: Biology
Grade Level(s): 9/10

Content Standard Addressed: SB1. d. Plan and carry out investigations to determine the role of cellular
transport (e.g., active, passive, and osmosis) in maintaining homeostasis

Technology Standard Addressed: 6c. Students communicate complex ideas clearly and effectively by
creating or using a variety of digital objects such as visualizations, models or simulations.

Selected Technology Tool: BrainPOP

Type of Instructional Software:
☒ Drill and Practice ☐ Tutorial ☐ Simulation ☐ Instructional Game ☒ e-books/e-references

Features of this software (check all that apply):
☒ Assessment Monitoring/Reporting
☐ Allows teacher to create customized lessons for students
☐ Multi-user or collaborative functions with others in the class
☐ Multi-user or collaborative with others outside the class
☒ Accessible to students beyond the school day
☒ Accessible via mobile devices
☒ Multiple languages
☒ Safety, security and/or privacy features

Bloom’s Taxonomy Level(s):
☒ Remembering ☒ Understanding ☐ Applying ☐ Analyzing ☐ Evaluating ☐ Creating

Levels of Technology Integration (LoTi Level):
☐ Level 1: Awareness ☒ Level 2: Exploration ☐ Level 3: Infusion ☐ Level 4: Integration
☐ Level 5: Expansion ☐ Level 6: Refinement

Lesson idea implementation:
The teacher will provide a link on a class website for the students to use to access the material. The teacher
will instruct students to watch the video, read the FYI section, and take the quiz to self-assess their
understanding. The teacher will also provide a handout of the activities section and will assess levels of
understanding from responses to the handouts and modify the lesson plan accordingly based on student
performance. The activity will be given to students as a flipped classroom assignment. The teacher will
extend student learning to a higher level by having the student create their own models of active transport in
class. They will be free to come up with how they would like to do the model (diagram on paper, on
computer, acted out, etc.). The lesson will be concluded by reviewing the information learned in the lesson
and feedback will be given based on accuracy and thoroughness of their work, both verbally and written. The
Bloom’s level and LoTi level will depend on the model students use.

Instructional Software
Students will watch the video, read the FYI, take the self-assessment quiz, and do the activity handout on
Brain POP. During the class period, students will come up with their own model of active transport.
